Beards are in fashion right now, and male grooming is a bigger market than it has ever been. For some of us, growing a beard is a simple process, while for others, things may not be so easy. There are many reasons why growth rates differ from person to person and it’s interesting to read how genetics play a big part in how a beard progresses, but there are things you can do to encourage growth. Let’s check out some tips that might help you grow a beard, so you can be on-trend this season.

Let’s Grow a Beard
So, you’re one of the many men who get frustrated when a beard doesn’t turn out as it should. You’re far from alone, it happens to many of us! There are several things you can do, so let’s list them and have a look:

● Patience is Vital – Your beard is not going to grow overnight. It will start to, but you have to wait. How long you have to wait depends upon the type of beard you want to grow. The current trend seems to be a full beard – the days of ‘designer stubble’ appear To be long in the past – and it will take quite a while to grow a decent beard if this is your aim. If it’s your first time, the trick is to leave it alone for as long as a month. Yes, that’s a long time, but it’s what you must do!

● Skin Care – Modern men take care of their skin, and there are many great male skin care products that you can use that will help your beard grow. A beard will flourish when the skin beneath is clean and healthy, so start by washing morning and night, exfoliating a couple of times a week, and applying moisturizer to your skin. We recommend VOID Homme's Facial Cleanser and Hydrating Facial Cream.

● Beard Moisturizer – If you’re new to the world of facial hair, rest assured there are
many products that you can buy specially created for men who want to grow a lush, wonderful beard. There is plenty of choice in terms of brands and formulas, so try a few and see which one suits you best. We recommend VOID Homme Beard Moisturizer. Keeping your beard hydrated is key to strong and healthy facial hair growth.

Following the three tips above will greatly enhance the chances of you growing a full beard. However ultimately, genetics plays a big role in beard growth and for some men, patchy beards are inevitable. But don't fret. In these situations, we recommend using a product like VOID Homme Beard Filler which can help create a full and defined beard look. The Beard Filler comes in the form of a pencil and is designed to cover patches in your beard to make it appear naturally groomed and polished all day long. So there you have it.
